PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk III
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.

Here is a read only link to the Aerodrome Database - WhichAerodrome.xlsx. Up to date as of 1/1/2019

Here are some "rules" for Which Aerodrome. These are based upon the original suggestions from the very first thread, and have a few additions. Also please be patient as when you are active others may be asleep.
  • A historic picture of an aerodrome will be posted. Newer pictures are allowed but the theme here is to compare/contrast old with new as well as identifying aerodromes which no longer exist.
  • The person who correctly identifies it will be declared the 'winner' by the original poster.
  • That winner shall either post another challenge or declare the floor open. Anyone may then post the next challenge.
  • If the winner of the challenge does not respond to the notification of their success within 48 hours, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on line.
  • When the poster of a challenge does not respond within 48 hours of a posted answer, this poster can be declared winner if the answer is considered correct in a consensus of multiple other posters.
  • If Open House is declared, regular posters should not jump in immediately, but time should be given for those who are not great at naming the correct location as they may have some good images.
  • There will only be one challenge running at a time.
  • Try to use elderly photos and not Google Earth pics
  • Try to post images that are not already present on internet, as Google Image Search will find them if they are.
  • Personal photos are acceptable as they show the aerodrome as it is now.
  • When confirming the correct location, the location and winner should be stated to negate any deletion of posts.
  • Please don't delete your posts, let everyone see your successes, failures and challenges.

Anyone can edit it so long as they have been here for 90 days with 90 posts. Let's get consensus before changing and not go crazy Thanks to Self Loading Bear for suggesting that we use a wiki.

Which Aerodrome II

Indeed it was. HMS Vengeance, HMNLS Karel Doorman, and final existence as ARA Veintecinco de Mayo all pointing to a Naval Air Station, and HMS Peewit being the name of the bird as well as the Shore Establishment. In The Netherlands at this time of year, apparently, Peewit eggs are legally sought but not damaged.

WIWOL territory close to Leuchars and Barry Budden, with Jaguar territory not too far. You have control.

It certainly was Jaguar country. I left one underground 17 miles NW of there in 1981.

Clearly crossed with Dook’s post.
I would never have picked up the link with HMS Peewit
And the Karel was previously named Venerable.

Peewit eggs,
yes nowadays still sought but then marked with flags to protect the nests from agricultural maching.
This year record breaking early in February.

RAAF?
I still miss the link with the Veinticinco de Mayo

Sorry - old pax got in first so I'll withdraw the one I just posted (although I can't actually see oldpax's one).

It's 2300 local time in Thailand so I think we might have to wait for oldpax to return.

However, I feel that kenparry is correct.

Are you there, oldpax?

If not Brunty, then St Mawgan (or Newquay Airport if you prefer)

I think it is XR807 and I believe the correct answer is not yet given.

Already on the gin and bitter lemon - bit early for a Spey Royal; I was intending to make a quip (spurred by the foregoing challenge) about comments falling on 'stoney ears' (Stone of Scone, get it?) but decided not to.

SLB,

If you believe that the correct answer has not yet been given, what's your guess ?
